Pray For Us

"With God all things are possible"
(Matthew 19:26)

Prayer is central to all that we do at EVC Uganda and we encourage our supporters to pray for the success of our work.

'The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective', so writes James in chapter 5 verse 16 of his letter. So a small group of us meet together on the last Wednesday of each month for a time of worship, prayer and updating, bringing the work of EVC to the Lord and asking for Him to cause our work to grow and be successful.

We would love to see this group increase in size and, for any who are able, to join us in these times. We meet for just over an hour at 8 pm at Our Lady of Ransom RC Church in Kempston every last Wednesday of the month. Please see the blog post about our prayer meeting for further details.



If you are not able to join us but are willing to pray, please use the prayer requests below as a help and guide for your prayers:
